 Jim Fassel Finally Gets Job ... in UFL

Posted Feb 3rd 2009 6:15 PM by Ryan Wilson (author feed)


In 2001, Jim Fassel led the Giants to the Super Bowl. He was fired three years later, eventually found his way to Baltimore, and served as the Ravens' offensive coordinator until Brian Billick canned him during the team's bye week.

That was two seasons ago. Fassel has been out of football since, though not from lack of effort. He was in the running for the 'Skins job last spring, and even sent Al Davis a handwritten letter about the Raiders' gig. Oh, and he also blamed bloggers for his plight. But that, as they say, is all water under the bridge.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Fassel's back. Sort of.
Former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel will be the coach of Las Vegas' entry into the United Football League, a source confirmed on Tuesday. The UFL is an upstart league that is expected to begin play in the fall. ...

UFL commissioner Michael Huyghue would "not confirm or deny" Fassel's hiring, but said there would upcoming announcements regarding the league.
I'm sure it's not how Fassel envisioned things working out, but, hey, the guy loves coaching -- you can't begrudge him for that. Plus, whatever happens, it will almost certainly be a better experience than working for the Raiders.
